[Blind Gossip] A formerly beloved TV star is fighting back against some serious allegations.
We’ve noticed that his side is using the “Nuts or Sluts” defense. Basically, when a woman speaks up about being sexually harassed or assaulted or discriminated against, the defense tries to discredit her by painting her as being either unstable or promiscuous (or both). It’s an ugly smear campaign designed to attack the accuser and to discourage others from coming forward.
This strategy has been used by everyone from Merrill Lynch to Clarence Thomas to Bill Clinton to Herman Cain. It is prohibited in the legal courtroom… but is unfortunately still used in the court of public opinion.
This nasty tactic is infuriating to one very significant person. This Actress actually worked alongside the TV Star for many years and was the object of his disgusting behavior on more than one occasion. She was ordered by producers to keep her mouth shut and she complied. She is now watching the current situation and weighing whether or not she will speak out publicly for the first time. We hope that she finds the courage to do so. Her story would go a long way in helping to validate the experiences of the other women who are currently being attacked as “Nuts or Sluts.”
